Critics push ABC to explain diverse fall lineup—and how Jewish 'The Goldbergs' are

ABC has one of the most diverse fall programming slates in TV history, and critics want to know why.

At the Television Critics Association press tour Tuesday, ABC chief Paul Lee fielded questions from reporters pushing for a more detailed explanation for why ABC greenlit three ethnic family comedies (Anthony Anderson’s Black-ish, Cristela Alonzo’s Cristela, and Eddie Huang’s Fresh Off the Boat, coming midseason), plus another drama series starring a black actress, Shonda Rhimes’ How to Get Away with Murder.

“We’re taking a very good step along that journey,” Lee told critics at the Beverly Hilton on Tuesday. “To be able to pull this off, you need not just stars on air… you need storytellers and executives”—such as the ones present at that very panel. “I’m very proud—if you look at the back of the room [referencing the various executives in attendance], it’s a very diverse group of people,” Lee continued. “You need the people telling the stories to truly reflect America as it is.” READ FULL STORY

'Modern Family': Eric Stonestreet explains the show's upcoming 'gay agenda'


Modern Family
definitely has a gay agenda coming up, but it’s not what you think! We all know that Cameron and Mitchell are preparing for their big wedding day on the ABC sitcom, but before they can make it to the altar, there needs to be a wild and crazy Las Vegas bachelor party! However, as Eric Stonestreet told us when he stopped by Entertainment Weekly Radio (SiriusXM, channel 105), it won’t be Cam & Mitchell’s bachelor party. “We just shot an episode that was kind of an anti-bachelor party episode in Vegas,” says the man who plays Cam. “When we get there we run into Langham, Mitchell’s ex played by the great Fred Armisen, and he’s there having his bachelor party. And they say ‘Well, while you’re here, feel free to stop by,’ and he hands me a piece of paper with all the happenings, and I turn and I go, ‘Wow, an actual gay agenda.’ So I sneak off and go and participate in their bachelor party while Mitchell gets a sauna and gets a massage.” READ FULL STORY

Wendi McLendon-Covey talks the perils of starring in an '80s-set comedy

Tonight’s premiere of the new ABC comedy The Goldbergs, a semi-autobiographical look at exec producer Adam F. Goldberg’s childhood in the ’80s, cannot come soon enough for star Wendi McLendon-Covey (Bridesmaids, Reno 911!), who plays the family’s matriarch: “I try to keep it realistic, like, this is what a woman of that age in that era would’ve worn, and sometimes, the jumpsuits are a little bedazzled. I forget when I’m on the Sony lot that I’m dressed like that, and I go walking around in my wig and my jumpsuit, and the show hasn’t aired yet, so no one knows who I am or what I’m doing there looking like that, and people look at me like, What is your problem? And I think, Oh, I forgot, I should’ve probably thrown a robe on or something. People throw shade at me,” she tells EW, laughing. “It’s very rude. It hurts my feelings. But we’ll see who will have the last laugh accepting her Emmy — MEEEEE.”
